Gall bladder attacks are no fun. Glad your procedure went well and recovery was quick!

so the brush with death was gallstone pancreatitis without pain. I had a gallbladder attack but was able to sleep the rest of the night so went to work. I don't have sick days and finding a sub for my job is not a quick thing. I worked all day and thought I just felt off from being sick the night before. THe next morning I woke at 4 AM and just felt not right. Whatever was going to happen there was no recovery time so I drove myself to the ER. I work out of town. All my labs related to my liver and pancrease were so high they couldnt measure them. I should have been writhing in pain but wasnt. If I were at home it wouldnt have been worth a trip to Santa Fe to be checked out.Who knows what would have happened then.THe waited a day to operate so things could settle down.THe surgery and recovery were no worse than a vigorous work out at the gym but I had to rest a bit more for a few days. All is well now

I imagine it does look pretty good. Want to elaborate on that "brush with death" thing?


Glad you're home safe and sound, and alive. Please tell more when you're settled.
